Toronto's getting a giant book sale with thousands of rare finds
With a recession going on and added costs of living in a city like Toronto, people need to save all the money they can while still being able to enjoy their hobbies.
The Treasures Sale at the Toronto Reference Library is back for another year with great deals on thousands of first edition, rare and collectible books.
Good news for book lovers! The Treasures Sale at Toronto Reference Library is back and will have thousands of first editions, signed, rare, antiquarian and collectable books.

You can buy donated items and materials from the library's collection and the money raised from those book sales will be used to support library programs and services.
The Treasure Sale runs from Sept. 15 to 17 in the library's Beeton Hall, and there is a $3 cash-only admission fee on Thursday, the first day of the event. Organizers ask attendees to bring their own bag as well as their patience, in case of any lineups.
For more book browsing, the Reference Library also has ongoing book sales that happen during the week called BookEnds. These book sales happen from Wednesday to Friday from 12 p.m. to 6 p.m., and Saturday from 12 p.m. to 5 p.m.
UPDATE: despite the TPL website for this event, which notes that "Materials range from $.50 to $5.00 with the majority of materials priced at $1.00," a blogTO reader has clarified that these rare treasures actually range in price from $5 to $100.
blogTO has attempted contact with TPL multiple times by phone and has not been able to reach a human for confirmation.
